I'm brewing my second batch and have been really busy with life and not had time to bottle. Fermentation finished, then I gave it another 2 days to make sure. No more burps/bubble from the air lock. Now it's been at least 4-5 days and I am wondering if it is still ok to bottle (does the yeast form spores and survive, then reinvigorate with more food)?
If not, can I just go get another packet of the same yeast and plop it in there with my charging sugar, give it a few mins, then bottle?
Also, is it recommended to disturb the liquid a bit to distribute the dormant yeast some before bottling? I ask because last batch a few did not charge at all but some were really well charged. Why the inconsistency?
Trying to bottle tonight if possible! Thanks y'all!
